177 with the fuel light flashing and little visible gas.

Thats riding to and from the twisties. In the twisties, the RPM's are of course a little higher. Just wondering what everyone else gets.

***sorry...MILES....*** damn beer

I usually fill up around 150-160 and still have about 1/2 gallon left or so. Highest I've gone was close to 200 and still had plenty left (it was a sloooooow ride down to the Keys... got 47 mpg though!)

I dunno... somewhere btw 220 and 240 in a 4.5 gallon tank if I take it down to fumes. Obviously I'm not running very hard though when I get that good of mileage.

light comes on 120-130 for normal, average riding. I get anxious if I don't get to a gas station by 150 though, as I'm usually running on fumes then.

Once got like 43 miles to the gallon. Still don't know how that one happend...

Gas light once came on at like 90. 4.8 gallon tank, 1 gallon reserve.

I got around 150-160 miles between fill ups with the 9fiddy4. That was what I felt comfortable with. I did take it to the extreme last summer and put 175 miles on one tank and when I filled it was bone dry. I was fully loaded for the trip though, tank, saddle, and tail bags were packed.

My Aprilia doesn't get as good a mileage I think. I haven't calculated it in a while but it seems I am always gettin gas. I still go about 150 per tank though. Maybe I'm riding it more. :cheers

gas light starts blinking around 130ish so that's when i fill it up. usually put in about 3.3-3.8 gallons of gas if i have the time. the damn gas pump always stops around 2.9-3 gallons

Mine comes on around 120 also. That is with a whole gallon left. I am not sure how long I would be able to get out of it if I ran it dry.

light comes on at 125. the most i've squeezed out is 150ish. Not bad for a 10 year old bike with 30,000 miles on it. I'm sure if I wasn't so heavy handed I could get that to go up.
